Top 5 Windows 7 security features to protect your PC
In times of an ever-increasing number of computer viruses and malware, we should take necessary precautions to protect our PCs. Sometimes, it happens that we don’t know how to configure the security settings of our computer. Windows 7 has several inbuilt security features which we should customize for maximum safety.
Through the Action Center of Windows 7, you can set the automatic installation of security updates that are released by Microsoft from time to time. To open Action Center, just click the ‘Start’ button, type ‘Action Center’ in the Search box and hit ‘Enter’. You can also enable Windows Firewall through Action Center and set up system back up.
The User Account Control (UAC) is another utility with which you can manage user permissions to open or install programs. UAC prevents potentially malicious programs from making changes to your computer.
The Action Center and UAC are just two of the five ways to secure your Windows 7 PC, which have been described in an article on CIO.
